Evidence suggests that group clinical supervision of counsellors and trainees is an effective mode of service delivery. However, clinical supervision is often understood to be concerned with teaching a generic set of skills. Without specifically labeling them as such, clinical supervision groups are implicitly identified as psycho-educational groups. This article argues that such groups are better understood as counselling groups. The critique of existing group supervision strategies highlights the common use of small-group fixed-outcome strategies when a small-group fixed-process strategy is more appropriate to the task.
